Sinn Féin to move legislation to kickstart the process of bringing waste management back under local control

Sinn Féin Environment spokesperson David Cullinane TD has announced that he will bring forward legislation next week that will kickstart the process of bringing waste management back under the control of local authorities.

Speaking today Teachta Cullinane said;

“The privatisation of domestic waste collection has not served us well.

“The high cost of bills is a real financial worry for many families.

“The level of recycling has also stagnated. 

“This is on top of multiple waste firms serving the same housing estates, causing unnecessary disruption with no real competition on price.

“We need to bring waste management back under local control, and to get there we first need to regulate the sector.

“Next week I will introduce a bill that will kickstart this process.

“We need an independent waste management regulator with the authority to licence waste firms, to set prices, and to enforce its decisions where necessary through fines or sanctions or both.

“My bill will compel the Minister to outline a pathway towards the creation of that office.”

Now is the time for justice for the forgotten – @MaryLouMcDonald

“For 50 long years, survivors of the Dublin and Monaghan bombings and the loved ones of victims have fought courageously for the truth and justice that is still so callously denied to them."

Remembering the victims of the Dublin and Monaghan bombings of 1974.

50 years on and survivors and families are still searching for answers. The British state must provide all information & evidence it holds on the bombings.

There must be truth and justice.
